About

Are you a global home decor lover who needs inspiration to incorporate your treasures from around the world at home?

In La casa de Freja I share ideas to highlight in your house those handcrafted pieces brought from your trips. Inspiration for global home decor.

I also invite you to know about my country´s culture Peru through its handicrafts and the craftsmen behind each of the different cultural expressions we have. I believe that each design has a story and every handcrafted work has a soul.

Welcome to La casa de Freja!

Hola! I’m Fiorella, a Latina (Peruvian) mom, architect, and lighting designer. I live in Denmark with my husband Tonny and our 2 small children: Freja and Thiago. Here we are creating our bicultural family and home: traditions, cultures, food, and languages from our countries: Peru and Denmark.

la casa de freja - family 2 In 2011, I made a trip of almost 15 hours from Peru to Denmark to start a new life. Despite the years that have passed, the love for my country has not changed. Being away from my country has taught me to value it much more, both its culture and its people. That motivated me to bring a piece of my country to the house through its crafts and textiles full of color, patterns and dream textures. While my husband tries to maintain his Scandinavian style and at the same time incorporating treasures from the world of each of his trips.

You can read a bit more of me, in this post of Wescover 🙂 Wescover is a platform where you can meet artists, designers and their products.

Why the blog is called La casa de Freja?

In Spanish because it is my mother tongue, it means Freja’s house. In the Norse mythology, Freyja is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, etc.

But Freja is also the name of our daughter. Then, the blog should be called now: La casa de Freja y Thiago!

COLLABORATORS OF THE BLOG

Alexandra Saenz

Alexandra-about-blogHello! My name is Alexandra, I am Peruvian, I am 23 years old and I’ve been in a loving relationship of approximately 5 years with interior design, my passion. I like to say that design is not a jealous love because it allows you to develop yourself in arts, culture, and literature. You can find it on textures and nature. For that reason, I call our relationship, a relationship of love and freedom. 

Furthermore, writing has always been something that drives me crazy. Therefore now, thanks to Fiorella I will be able to enjoy my two passions together here at La Casa de Freja, writing about what I love: interior design!

Melissa-about-blog

Hello! I am Melissa, interior designer and mom of a 5-year-old girl who inspires me with all that creativity of the children’s world. I really liked the idea of being able to share many decorating ideas, so you can understand how easy it is to decorate our spaces.

For me, the design is not just colors and drawings but much more. It is the expression of our life, the way we express our personality by dressing in a certain way, in how we decorate our house or workspace, etc.

Finally, I understand the design completely because it allows me to express myself without limits. By painting, drawing, writing as now, decorating, reading, learning, researching and creating.
